Tagging for Triggers (Especially Phobias)

fuckyeahtriggerwarnings:

If you have a phobia/trigger that you’re looking to avoid, you should really-really get tumblr savior. It lets you decide which tags you want to “block,” and then any posts with those tags get displayed like notifications that tell you what the tag is and who posted it. (ETA: it also allows you to expand the “notification” to see the post if you so choose).

Of course, this will only work out if the people you follow will actually tag their posts with the phobias they might be invoking. So with that in mind, I’ve started a very incomplete list of potential phobias/triggers, and how you can tag for them. This list is especially helpful if you’re posting an image, or if there is little context that would otherwise be helpful in letting a reader decide if ze wants to skip the post.

This made me realise I post a lot of stuff which could be pretty triggering! I’ve gone back and tagged it all (I think), here’s the relevant tags I’ve used and am likely to use. I’m happy to add any other tags that you guys would find helpful due to triggers/major squick/work policy etc.

  • blood
  • serious injury
  • nsfw (nudity, and in theory sex but I’m unlikely to draw that :))

I’ll try and remember to tag spiders etc if they come up, but I may forget. (I tried putting this under a cut, but you know how cuts are :/)
